Antigone - De Rerum Natura
Antigone is a pure organic linen yarn. Composed of ten strands of combed flax well twisted, its hand is smooth, silky and deliciously fresh. This yarn has been spun in Italy from flax grown in France and Netherlands respecting the standards of organic farming. It has been then twisted, dyed, put in balls and tagged in Creuse, France.
It can be knitted with smaller needles for a typical, sport-weight result or with larger needles to take advantage of its natural drape which allows it to adapt to a large number of patterns.
Particularly resistant, linen likes to be washed and worn; it will become more and more soft over time and you can enjoy your favorite sweater many season. We recommend machine washing your project on a delicate cycle and laying flat to dry.
